Urinalysis or commonly known as urine test has been a widely used drug testing method in schools, universities, workplace, government institutions, hiring agencies, and so forth. Although surrounded by controversy due to its invasive technique, a urine test is an acceptable and effective medium to detect whether or not an individual is using and/or under the influence of illicit substances or alcohol.
As people become more familiar with urine drug test, several adulteration strategies have been devised in an attempt to pass urine screening. While the act of cheating on a drug or alcohol urine test may be associated with legal consequences, one of the more familiar techniques used today is drying the urine sample.
Recent studies have shown that dried urine is linked to passing random drug tests in the workplace, particularly marijuana drug tests. However, more than simply cheating a urine test – which you may not want to do to avoid legal penalties – dried urine samples are believed to have the capacity to detect cancer cells even before signs and symptoms have manifested.
The principle is based on the findings of HCG’s in the urine after it is dried. Developed in a 1930’s by a renowned oncologist, Dr. Manuel D. Navarro, the test tried to prove that elevated HCG’s is directly proportional to having cancer. Dr. Howard Beard’s study, which became the basis of Dr. Navarro’s procedure, proposes that any cancer is related to the displacement of trophoblasts that becomes malignant and secretes HCG. The higher the number of HCG in the urine, the more malignant the cancer.
These physicians proposed that a score of 50 might indicate possible cancer. The Navarro Urine Cancer Test could potentially detect a brain cancer as early as 29 months before symptoms appear. It could also have significant diagnostic effects in other cancers including fibrosarcoma of the abdomen, skin cancer, and metastatic bone cancer from primary breast cancer.
The process of drying the urine sample is as follows:
